Response from Dr. McGovern

Since you are HbeAg reactive, you probably have chronic infection with virus in your blood. However, you will want to have those tests checked again to see if this is truly the case. If so, you should also have serial monitoring of your liver function tests over time.

Your husband should be vaccinated against hepatitis B.

Your baby was probably vaccinated against hepatitis B at birth.
